Ex-Trump adviser RPCV Peter Navarro reports to prison on contempt of Congress conviction


Peter Navarro (Thailand 1965-68)

MIAMI — Former Donald Trump adviser Peter Navarro (Thailand 1965-68), who was convicted of contempt of Congress last year, is set to surrender Tuesday at a federal Bureau of Prisons facility in Miami to begin serving his four-month sentence.

Before turning himself in, Navarro held a press conference in a strip-mall parking lot down the street from the facility. Near a Papa John’s, Navarro gave an extended speech airing his grievances against the government and his prosecution, painting himself as a victim of political persecution.

“I will walk proudly in there to do my time,” Navarro said. “I will gather strength from this: Donald John Trump is the nominee.”

Navarro, who was closely involved in Trump’s attempts to overturn his 2020 presidential election loss in the lead-up to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, was convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena from the House committee investigating Jan. 6. He had been directed to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons by 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

 p.s. The word is that at best he’ll be behind bars for 90 days.
